Being Who You Are – Madeleine Haskett

Good morning. This month’s theme is “A Grand Rising”.

Todays topic is “Being Who You Are.”

Carl Jung said “Do not compare, do not measure. No other way is like yours. All other ways deceive and tempt you. You must fulfill the way that is in you.” and “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

Oscar Wilde said “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”

Pema Chodron, “Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.”

Wayne Dyer said “The essential lesson I’ve learned in life is to just be yourself. Treasure the magnificent being that you are and recognize first and foremost you’re not here as a human being only.” Both Dr Dyer and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin are quoted saying, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are a spiritual beings having a human experience.”

Rumi – You are not a drop in a ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.

Lao Tzu explained “The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.”

Thich Nhat Hanh (The Art of Power), “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.”

Mahatma Gandhi “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Living the Science of Mind (pg 115) – “All people desire a personal God, and in our system of thought we may be certain that Spirit is personal to everyone who personifies It. If the Spirit is Omnipresent and undivided, It is at the very center of our being, and each one of us is a unique representation of this Omnipresent One.

Most certainly God is personal to everyone, and the wonderful thing is that each represents God in a unique way. Each individualizes God, and no two individualizations are identical. Thus the Personality of God is not only real to us, but It is uniquely real.”

Ernest Holmes says “You are an eternal being now on the pathway of endless unfoldment, never less but always more yourself. Life is not static. It is forever dynamic, forever creating, not something done and finished, but something alive, awake and aware. There is something within you that sings the song of eternity. Listen to it.”
